For the Heck of It!

I have had some "down time" between my DT commitments and I have enjoyed it.  But then I realized that I was BORED!  So I sat down at my table and rummaged through my scraps drawer.  Ok, not really rummaged, I pretty much grabbed whatever was on top and decided to make a couple cards. 

These cards are actually mini cards.  I just love mini cards!  They are so cute and dainty.  I took a regular 5x7 card and cut it in half perpendicular to the fold then went to town. 

I used a mash-up of Sass Lass and Basic Grey.

I just love how these li'l guys turned out!  Here are some shots of the cards individually. 

For the first card, I used Basic Grey "Hello Luscious" and cut the borders from a sheet of patterned paper.  I accented them using a plain ol' black sharpie.  To balance the bold black lines, I used kraft journaling tags by Maya Road and a sticker from Basic Grey.  The alphas are by Thickers (of course!!) and there's turquoise Stickle dots on the borders and crown. 

For the second card, which is actually a birthday card for my neighbor, I used Basic Grey's "Hello Luscious" and Sass's "Ellie's Tale".  The flower is by Prima and I made the medallion.  I used Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type to make the "CHEERS" banner.  (She absolutely LOVED it by the way!)

I hope you enjoyed these little minis and I hope they inspire you to create a couple for yourself!  They are GREAT to on hand for that last minute card.
